Under normal circumstances, I’d rather have my eyes propped open with toothpicks for two hours than watch any Elijah Wood movie, but…a film by Nacho Vigalondo, co-starring a *former* porn star can hardly be considered normal. The Timecrimes director also wrote the script for this “internet heavy” cyberstalking thriller that finds Nick Chambers (Wood) being manipulated by his own obsession. After he wins a dinner date with his favorite actress (Grey) that never pans out, Nick is given the opportunity to spy on her…an offer he can’t refuse. As any fool could guess, his willingness to go along with the creepiness only leads to trouble, with Nick drawn into some sicko’s nasty plan.
It looks pretty terrible, right? But like I said, Vigalondo might be enough to get me past my Wood aversion…on VOD, of course. Open Windows also stars Neil Maskell (Kill List, The ABCs of Death, Nacho Vigalondo and Iván González; it opens in theaters September 29th.
